CIE is celebrating its one hundredth anniversary! A century during which our knowledge of lighting fundamentals has taken enormous leaps forward, bringing new applications of light supported by both technological advances and economic success. A century that began with the revolution of the electric light and efforts to bring both the electric light bulb and the power it required into common use ends with the need to reduce energy distribution and use, and brings a technology that promises to achieve this for lighting. 

CIE Training on the Metrology of LEDs and LED Modules

Registration now open!

On October 16 and 17, 2012 the next training will take place in the CIE Central Bureau in Vienna. 
You can participate either in “real life” in the Central Bureau in Vienna or wherever you are during the seminar by using our live streaming facility and our online training tool.
